Earnings preview: What to look for when Oracle reports Q1 results

Oracle Corporation (NYSE: ORCL) is scheduled to report first quarter 2020 earnings results on Thursday, September 12, after the closing bell. Analysts estimate earnings to increase 16% to $0.81 per share and revenue to inch up by 1% to $9.29 billion.

Oracle is expected to benefit from the increasing adoption of its cloud-based applications which will help drive revenue and margins. The company has added new features to its services which is also likely to bode well for growth.

The partnership with Microsoft (NYSE: MSFT) is expected to benefit both companies in the enterprise cloud market. The weakness in the hardware and services segments, which have been ongoing for the past two quarters, are likely to dampen results in the to-be-reported quarter.

In the fourth quarter of 2019, revenue and earnings topped estimates. Revenue rose 1% to $11.1 billion while adjusted EPS jumped 23% to $1.16. The topline numbers benefited from strength in the Fusion and NetSuite cloud applications.
